Termites

Termites are known to swarm during fall months and reproduce in homes until February. They are social insects living in colonies that can contain up to several million.

Bedbugs

Bedbugs hitchhike from one location to another through luggage and purses. They have frequently been found on planes and in hotels. Take extra precautions to prevent bringing them home with you while traveling.

Crazy Ants

Crazy ants are common inn southern states and typically infest homes in large numbers. Keeping a well-manicured lawn during winter months can help homeowners notice crazy ants before their numbers increase.

Overwintering Pests

Overwintering pests enter homes in the fall and prepare to nest for the winter. Beetles, ladybugs and box elders are some of the most common types of insects to enter homes during the winter. Keep a close eye on the west side of your home where bugs like to sunbathe for warmth in the afternoons.

Stinkbugs

A type of overwintering pest, stinkbugs enter homes to survive during the winter. They are aptly named for the odor emitted as their defense mechanism.
